Psychological Services in Vocational Rehabilitation Conference Proceedings.
Bourque, Ellsworth J., Ed.
This report contains selected papers presented by a group of consulting psychologists and state rehabilitation officials who attended a four-day institute at the University of Florida in 1968. The purpose of the Institute was to permit the two groups to explore the advantages of extending the range of psychological services to clients and personnel of the official agency. The report contains papers dealing with the problems, mutual interests and modes of interaction between psychologists and rehabilitation counselors. It is hoped that this report will help psychologists not already serving rehabilitation agencies to investigate the need for their skills. Counselors and agency personnel may benefit from a new look at the role of psychology as a necessary ingredient in the rehabilitation process. Some papers included in this report are: (1) "The Changing Role of Psychology in Rehabilitation," by E. J. Bourque, (2) "Identifying and Evaluating Behavior Disorders," by Hugh C. Davis, (3) "Meaningful Psychological Services," by John E. Mathard, and (4) Recommendations: Use of Psychologists in Vocational Rehabilitation. (Author/KJ)
